    I am very interested in this painting that I have found in my friends basement. It is a painting by Frederick Ogden, and I cannot seem to find it anywhere. I have searched all over the internet for it, but cannot find it. I was wondering if anyone could help me.

    I FOUND FREDERICK D OGDEN IN A SIMILAR MANNER. I BOUGHT SEVERAL OLD LITHOGRAPHS AT AN AUCTION. THE FRAMES WERE IN BAD SHAPE BUT THANKFULLY THE PRINT OF OGDEN’S “WINTER MOONLIGHT” IS NEARLY PERFECT.

    MY PRINT IS 16″ X 20″. THE FIRST THING I HAVE DONE WITH MY PRINT IS TO REMOVE IT FROM THE OLD FRAME AND CARDBOARD BACKING. I HAVE PURCHASED AN ACID-FREE FOAM BOARD FOR THE RESTORATION.

    OGDEN WAS ONE OF FIRST AFRICAN-AMERICAN PAINTERS TO BE WELL-KNOWN IN LANDSCAPES. TO ME HIS WORK REPRESENTS BEAUTY AND SIMPLICITY IN A ROMANTIC ERA OF THE WEST. PRINTS IN GOOD CONDITION SHOULD SIGNIFICANTLY INCREASE IN VALUE. THEY ALSO SHOULD BE OF INTEREST TO LOCAL LIBRARIES AND ART CENTERS. I MAY PLACE MINE ON LOAN FOR SIX MONTHS OR SO.

    I AM OFFERING MY PRINT FOR SALE IN MY SHOP AT THE PRICE OF $95.

    PLEASE SEND ME THE LITHO PRINT NUMBER–USUALLY FOUND IN THE BOTTOM RIGHT OR LEFT CORNER. MOST LIKELY YOUR PRINT IS FROM “C. MOSS”.

      I have a picturee I picked up at a thirft shop and my mother inlaw told me she thinks it was a great find the picture is Moutain view and I think it is breath taking the G.P is 6337 and is Litho U.S.A co. I am looking for more info on this item.

    • Jim Tureson said

      I to am trying to find out some information on a print I found while cleaning my late Mother-in-laws house. It has Frederick D Ogden on the lower right corner. Below that is C. MOSS 1940, and below that is LITHO IN U.S.A. On the lower left corner is the number 2302. Beautiful mountains in the background reflecting on a lake, rocks in foreground and a cabin with smoke coming out the chimney. There is some (2) small scratches on the darkened sky, but a very nice scene. Anyone with information on this? Thanks for your help.

      Robin, I saw your post about your Ogden painting. I have one similar to your description, if not the same one. I was wondering if you had any responses about the value of it. Thanks, Glenda B.

      • Robin Fike said

    I have recently found a Ogden Lithograph. It is in the original frame and seems to be in very good condition. The number in the corner is 6885. I am wondering what the name of the picture is. Any idea of it’s value?

  8. karen godsey said

    hello, i too have an oil painting done by Frederick D. Ogden, entitled ” Winter Moonlight ” the painting appears to be in fairly great condition, the painting is framed in gold, i am very curious to know how i can distinguish an original from a replica, also, is there a fairly high value on this artists work?

    thank you, karen,

  9. Glenda, I have a print in my basement , and I believe the name on it is Frederick D. Ogden, It is a stream with trees in background , with three deer on the banks., Have had this for many years, was given to my husband by a friend.
    Am wondering if this is an original or print, have not taken it out of the frame, but am going to , check to see if there is a number or any other info.

    • Virginia
      I think I have the same painting. It is of a stream, waterfall on the right. 3 deer are on the bank and it has mountains and clouds. It is signed and in the right hand corner it says: G.P. 6338 Litho in U.S.A. (L)? Co. I was wondering if you had any response to your post?

      Thanks
      Chris

      • dee bates said

    • Chris Baker said

      I think i have the same one.Waterfalls to the right,deer on the left side on a bank, mountains and a really high tree to the left. Chris from Brithish Columbia

    I have recently been given a Federick D. Ogden framed print that hung in my grandparents living room for years. It is a sea scene with two naval ships transiting. Any info or value on this?

    • Robert Castelli said

      Upon closer inspection, it appears this is a commercial reproduction print with no data on it and that someone has glued, two newspaper cut outs of perfectly scaled in size Naval ships, onto the print! I dont suppose this technique was used by Ogden on his prints… and this may be the work of my one Grandfather who was a WW II Navy veteran. This was Granpa’s MO and the “repairs” (screws and wire) to the frame strengthen my assumptions. Strangely though, the print was passed to me by my other Grandfather, the WW II Army veteran. Both Grandfathers were friends for many years and only lived a few blocks from each other…very plausible to think one passed it to the other. I miss them both, the greatest generation.

  11. Robert Castelli said

    Oh…and the value – Priceless!

  12. carol perkins said

    I have an Odgan framed picture. It is of a scene with snow topped mountains with rushing water down a small falls into a lower green area where four deer are grazing on very green follage. The picture has the name Bow River Falls stamped on the back . I assume that is the name of the place that inspired the painting. I knew the lady that owned the picture. I am very sure she was the only owner. She passed away some twenty years ago but before I give it to her grandaughter I was hopeing to have more information to share..

    • Derrell Wilson said

      Hi Carol,
      I have an Ogdan and it has a sticker on it that says 2818 Bow River Falls on it but its typed in I assume by a typewriter as it looks old. It’s on a sticker from the Georgia Art Supply Co., in Atlanta, GA. So I think that is the address but I can find either when I Google them. I think mine is an oil painting that I picked up at a yard sale recently. It has $149.50 penciled in on the back which I think would be the selling price at the time. So I thnk it might be valuable. If you’ve learned any more about your painting please let me know. Thanks, Derrell

      • Ken said

        Hello, I also have a print similar, it measures 20×27. did you ever disecover a value for the ‘bow river falls’ print?

      • Carol Perkins said

        No, I”m sorry to say I did not. The picture had belonged to my granddaughter’s fraternal grandmother so when she recently bought a home it went to her. I have ask her to keep contact with American Gallery and to continue looking for more infprmation about the picture and Mr. Ogdon. I will certainly put any new info on the wed site should it come to me. Thank you so much, Carol Perkins cnpmunford@live.com Date: Fri, 12 Oct 2012 22:37:57 +0000 To: cnpmunford@live.com

    I have an old FREDERICK D. OGDAN framed picture, with the scene being mountains, something that looks like deers, birds, and greenery all around but have no clue on it. My grandmother was 88years old when she passed so the painting has to be in the time of her mother 1900. catrina.boyd@yahoo.com for any comments ON F.D.OGDAN . THANKS

  14. molly Gunderson said

    I have an lithograph in USA, GP 3525 written in the left hand corner. Frederick D. Ogden is the signature below. This picture is of a wide expanse of water–sea or ocean?–with the sun breaking through the clouds shining on the water. There is a coastline of boulders and flowers on right side and bottom. Can you give me any information on this particular lithograph? It is framed. Thanks very much.

    I have a 16×30 print of Frederick D. Ogden (winter moonlight). On the bottom right it is stamped (copr. A. Fox 1957. On the left bottom is 2759 stamped. I would appreciate any information.

  22. Chuck ,,Mar 2 2013 I have a litho By Frederick D Ogden. It is a winter landscape, with a log cabin, and 2 intersecting rivers, in the background are snow covered mountains. I have reserched the print as I found this print in a house 100 years old in OK. With it came information about Ogden UT, and the first permante house in UT. Some things are very different about this litho. First of all the signature is on the right, as is the litho stamp. I have had this litho 12 years, and it is in the original frame. The frame is in need of restoration. The litho in in good shape, but could use some repair. I have just in the last few minutes taken it out of the frame, In the left bottom is the number 2315. The history is that the Cabin was built on the Weber river intersectiong the Ogden river. In the reserch, I have seen several small waterfalls, and other pictures of design that has been mention in the comments on this site. I am convinced that F. D. Ogden was in this area, just north of Salt Lake City, and Layton UT. Oh yes the Morman ranch/church was founded on the property of the builder of the Cabin, and incompassed the hole of Weber County. Ogden and several other towns are in this Property. I have no other information, as weeks of reserch went to this litho. Chuck Note I knew I Susan Lamb Where I live In FL. and she was Morman.

      Suze Lamb is not my real name. When I was little my dad invented some funny stories about a girl named Suze Lamb. So when I grew up it became my favorite nickname. My name is Suzanne but I’m not a Lamb. :)

    I have a Frederick D. Ogden oil painting that has been passed down to me…it says it is an original, but I cannot find any information on it. On the front of the frame is a placard that says “Pennsylvania Hills” and on the back it says “Harvest Time”. It was purchased from a gallery in Cleveland, OH. Does anyone have any thoughts on this?

  24. Carol Thompson said

    We have a Frederick D.Ogden 8×10, maybe a print of a scene in a mountainous area, a cabin in sight with a 4-dog team and a parka- dressed sled handler navigating a trail to the distant cabin..my father 1911 worked in Alaska as a young man so I am guessing he bought the “print” at that time. .any comments

  25. Karla said

    We have a Fredrick Ogden litho of a stream with a cabin, row boat and three men amongst a wooded scene with mountains in the background. In the very left hand corner it says CORP. C. MOSS 1946 litho in USA . What can you tell us about this?
